The 2021 BMW F 850 GS Adventure is the Ultimate Middleweight Adventure Bike
The 2021 BMW F 850 GS Adventure is the top model in the BMW Motorrad middleweight adventure class, and one of the most exciting motorcycles in the 2021 BMW line-up. It’s an uprated version of the standard F 850 GS, but with plenty of differences that elevate it above the base model.
Like the regular F 850 GS, the F 850 GS Adventure uses a compact European-made liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. There are no differences between the two, and the 853 cc twin-cylinder powerplant produces the same power outputs of 90 horsepower and 63 lb-ft of torque. The power is transferred to the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox and a chain drive.
The main differences between the F 850 GS and the GS Adventure are updates to the exterior. The GS Adventure comes equipped with adjustable levers, an adjustable windshield, enduro-style footrests, a tough engine guard, hand protectors, and a stainless-steel luggage rack as standard. Other standard features also include ABS, Automatic Stability Control, selectable ride modes (Rain, Road), an anti-hopping clutch, and LED lighting.
For 2021, the F 850 GS Adventure is available in three color options: Ice Grey, Style Rallye with Kalamata Metallic Gold, and a special edition black and yellow design that celebrates 40 years of the GS brand designation.
